What I was proposing is that we add another operator called “Move” which will be called instead of “Copy” if the right value (dest) is a temporary value (i.e., not mapped to static memory). Sven and Jonas hinted this could be dangerous but I personally think it’s pretty manageable (and completes the management operators).

Not sure about inline though,  I don’t think the compiler inlines these operators at all. FPC seems to have lots of non-inlinable code these days which is too bad. Maybe the LLVM backend will fix that someday?
